Although the average retirement age has increased recently, people are still planning ahead as to where they would like to spend their retirement days. When considering where to live, most people consider factors such as city/town profile, tax information, education opportunities, and more minor things such as weather and art and cultural activities. A great area to live in is a college area and more people are beginning to move there as they discover the great benefits of doing so. In a college town there are cultural activities, athletic events, and good medical facilities which make the area so appealing to retirees. Florida seems to be up there as a top state to retire to mainly for the attractions, and the fact that there are great places to fish and go on a cruise. According to MSN Money Staff, the best place to retire to is Cuenca, Ecuador. They chose this area because it is in a sunny, cosmopolitan, and inexpensive location. Although areas have been voted best or worst places to retire to, everyone’s opinion is different. When choosing a place to move to, you should consider what is most important to you. If safety comes before weather to you, thank you may have to choose an area that has little to no crime but is often rainy. At the end of the day, you probably won’t be able to get everything you want but in some areas you can definitely get pretty close.
